low carb diets

i began a low carb diet 18 months ago. within 6 months i was off all diabetic drugs. i have so far lost over 3 stones. my body shape has changed and i feel so well. its not a diet as such. its a lifestyle change. i go out for meals but i am very careful . my knowledge has grown so i know what is loaded with carbs. at home i cook normal meals for my husband but adapt menus to suit me. this really does work. my cholestrol is also down plus my blood pressure. happy days.
